Angela Davis hails Morning Star as ‘paper of peace and justice’

LEGENDARY civil rights activist Angela Davis has praised the Morning Star for championing peace and socialism.

The US academic was in conversation with Scottish author and poet Jackie Kay at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge on Tuesday night.

Thousands of people attended the event, which was beamed live into university colleges, including the University of Cambridge’s Downing College.

Ms Davis was greeted by 92-year-old Morning Star supporter and seller George Wills, who handed her a copy of the paper.

She told him: “We need to continue to work for peace and justice — two things that have always been championed by the Morning Star.”

Ms Davis is a former member of the US Communist Party and the Black Panthers.
